As of 3/7/07:

The basepaths at Osceola County Stadium yesterday had the makings of an AARP convention in the fourth inning. Moises Alou (40) was on third, Julio Franco (48) stood at second and Sandy Alomar Jr. (40) was camped comfortably at first when the unthinkable happened.

One more out, and all three could casually walk off the field. But Mike Carp -- age 20 -- showed no respect for his elders by launching a double to the wall in centerfield. Somehow, all three cruised home, Alomar bringing up the rear without a slide.

"Three old guys," Alou said. "We all scored, too. We don't look at age. We look at ourselves as players. No matter what the age is." Mets Spring Training Buzz
